In light of the California-American Water Company boil water advisor issued, San Diego County is advising affected residents of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended steps during an advisory.
Customers affected by this advisory include those within the City of Coronado south of Fiddler’s Cove, and City of Imperial Beach. (The City of Coronado north of Fiddler’s Cove is unaffected.)
When a Boil Water Advisory is in effect, affected customers should use bottled water or boiled tap water for drinking, brushing teeth, and to prepare and cook food. When boiling water, bring it to a full rolling boil for at least one minute, and then allow it to cool before use. Be careful not to swallow water when bathing or showering, and to supervise young children and babies when being bathed.
The County is working with impacted healthcare facilities and restaurants to help safeguard the public’s health and safety. Customers with questions can call Cal-Am Water at 1-888-237-1333 or visit www.amwater.com for more information.
